The 1968 AL Cy Young award winner owes creditors some substantial cash–and authorities aren’t waxing nostalgic about what might have to go.
40 years after his sensational 1968 season, former Major League pitcher Denny McLain was in a Michigan courtroom Monday as creditors lined up to collect money from unpaid debts.
McLain spent some time in jail last Friday after he was arrested on a warrant issued for failing to appear at a civil case court hearing in Brighton, Michigan. The order gave authorities the right to seize some of McLain’s valuables and they pulled several pieces of memorabilia from his playing days.
The troubled former Detroit Tigers’ ace wrote a book last year, but hasn’t come up with money he owes to at least a few different creditors. If he can’t come up with the cash, Tuesday’s Detroit News reports some of those pieces of baseball memorabilia may be put up for sale pretty soon.
